As women age, the amount of estrogen in their bodies begins to deplete. As a result, many women will experience certain changes in their vaginas, including a thinning of the vaginal walls and a shortening of the vaginal canal. One out of every three women experiences vaginal dryness during this time, and that number increases after menopause. This can make sex difficult, or even painful.
The vagina is normally lubricated with the help of estrogen, which also works to keep the vagina healthy, thick, and elastic. Because estrogen levels drop during menopause, so does the amount of moisture available, making the vagina thinner and less elastic. This is also known as vaginal atrophy.
To avoid symptoms such as itching, burning, and painful intercourse, many women are turning to noninvasive female rejuvenation treatments. Dr. Guram at the Texas Health and Lifestyle Center uses FemTouch®, which effectively improves your vaginal health and fights against vaginal dryness.
FemTouch is a CO2 laser treatment applied along the vaginal wall that delivers controlled ablation and coagulation of the vaginal lining. This improves vaginal health, fights against vaginal atrophy, and helps to reduce vaginal dryness.
FemTouch works by stimulating new vaginal tissue and triggering the production of collagen. Because collagen is a central building block of skin, it’s essential for the rejuvenation of the vaginal walls.
The pattern used during FemTouch treatment is a 360º motion along the vaginal tissues, ensuring the entire area is covered. This noninvasive treatment is perfect for women who want to regain their vaginal health.
Women in their 30’s and older may be good candidates for vaginal rejuvenation. More specifically, you may want to think about treatment if you have experienced problems with physical intimacy or urinary leakage. Consider vaginal rejuvenation if you have any of the following concerns:
FemTouch is an extremely comfortable and gentle procedure. Some patients do experience a heating sensation during treatment, but this rarely reaches an uncomfortable level. Usually, you need 2-4 treatment sessions to optimize your results, with each session lasting only a few minutes. However, most patients notice substantial improvements after just 1-2 treatments.
If you want to know if FemTouch female rejuvenation is right for you, consult with Dr. Guram at the Texas Health and Lifestyle Center today. He’ll walk you through your treatment options.
